20 years of ENIL

The history of the Independent Living in Europe, and the European Network on Independent Living – ENIL cannot be confined to a timeline or a poster. To mark our 30th anniversary, we have decided to take you through some moments of ENIL’s history and to show how much of ENIL’s beginnings and the Independent Living philosophy on which ENIL was built on survive to this day. The world and Europe today are very different from that momentous year of 1989, but a strong Independent Living movement is still much needed. Looking back helps us take stock of where we have come from and gives us resolve to stay STRONG, PROUD AND VISIBLE in the years to come.
